What's your best chatspin chatroulette story?
When I was younger, my best chatroulette would be the one with a girl in London. We would just type out random words, and then she would randomly type back, Hello, I'm Jane. So we would just type out random sentences, and then she would randomly type back, Hello, John. And so on. And so it went on and on. And so I had this one really fondest chatspin ever, and I was so sad that she didn't want to make it into this post.
So I started collecting all the examples of chatroulette that I could find, and I realized that I had collected so many wonderful people, and I thought, Wow, these are the best people that I've ever met on chatroulette.

Then I started to see strange behavior. The first city that I saw was West Virginia, and we had a weird relationship, like we didn't really know each other. The next day, I called and texted every teenager that I could find, and there was one girl that I didn't even know. I mean, I'm sure she's 15 years old. I mean, she's 15. She just looked exactly like her mom. But there were several other examples of bizarre moments that I noticed. For example, one time, I was walking home from school one day and I saw this little boy running towards me. And I stopped and asked the kid, Who are you? And the kid said, I don't know you. And I said, Then where are you from? And the next day, when I looked in the
